Probe Connects N.Y. Phone Firm to Bawdy Parties

July 12, 1990| Associated Press

NEW YORK — Investigators are looking into allegations that New York Telephone suppliers helped pay for bawdy parties and prostitutes at annual conventions of company employees, it was reported today.

State regulators are questioning whether the meetings at Florida resorts resulted in higher costs being paid by customers, The Wall Street Journal said.

The meetings, held for one week each year from 1984 through '88, allegedly involved improper contact between employees of Materiel Enterprises Co., the purchasing unit of New York Telephone corporate parent Nynex, and about 30 company suppliers, the report said.

Annual awards were handed out to the wildest attendees of the events. One Nynex worker won the "Procurement Award" three times in a row for his efforts in enticing women to attend the parties.

Other honorees included the "Most Valuable Pervert" and the winner of the "Moon Over Miami Award," for unspecified activities, the newspaper said.
